Teamwork Trust is a charity which supports autistic adults, people with learning disabilities and individuals with mental health needs.
“We work hard to transform day-to-day living experiences into impactful learning opportunities. Our service users help to steer and plan everything we do.”
The head of development contacted us as the charity wanted COVID-safe workspaces for their members to come back to when their centres opened again. After the uncertainty of the pandemic, it was of paramount important that their members felt safe whilst enjoying themselves, especially after having to stay inside without socialising much for a very long period of time.
That’s where Benchmaster comes in – our range of social distancing workbenches proved to be ideal for this situation.
- 87 steel top social distancing workbenches
The Benchmaster team completed these 87 workbenches in just two and a half weeks and delivered them to Teamwork Trust centres in Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough just in time for their reopening. Teamwork Trust members were ecstatic with their new benches and the team here at Benchmaster were more than happy to help provide a safe working environment.
Our marketing manager, Andrew Warburton had this to say:
“This was one of our biggest bespoke projects, it was also a race against time to get such a vast quantity of workbenches made and delivered in a matter of weeks. The whole team rose to the challenge because of who it was for, and they’ve been keen to find out what the reaction was. We are so happy at how well they’ve been received by the service-users. It has definitely been a project that has been close to all of our hearts.”
“The Bench Master team have been a delight to work with. They created the most amazing, bespoke workspaces for our members to use, and we are all thrilled. Those who were a little nervous coming back into our centres were put at ease with the new Covid-safe layout and workbenches. For some, it was what swayed them to return. We can’t thank Bench Master enough.” – Victoria Bell, Head of Development at Teamwork Trust
